Orion StarBlast 6i Intelliscope Dobsonian Telescope

Presenting the most compact and portable computerized 6” reflector on the market, the “Push-To” Orion StarBlast 6i IntelliScope Reflector Telescope! Now available with Orion’s exclusive IntelliScope Computerized Object-Location System. You and your family are guided to vivid views of over 14,000 celestial objects, giving you night after night of stargazing adventures. The Orion StarBlast 6i IntelliScope Reflector Telescope is a portable 6” f/5.0 reflector that comes with an onboard Computerized Object Locater (COL). This object location system will guide you to over 14,000 celestial objects. The StarBlast’s 6i’s 150mm diameter parabolic primary mirror gathers plenty of light to observe the Moon and bright planets like Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and brighter deep sky objects like nebulas, galaxies, and sparkling star clusters. Fully assembled weight is just 23.5 pounds and can be used on a table, the hood of a car, or any other suitable flat surface.

After a simple star alignment process, the Computerized Object Locator works in tandem with two high-resolution digital encoders on the Orion StarBlast 6i’s base mount to help locate and identify celestial objects in the night sky. Now you can pinpoint objects in space and place them in the middle of the telescope eyepiece field of view in seconds. The “Push-To” Starblast 6i saves you power and money when compared to pricier motorized GoTo systems. When getting started, if you’re not sure what to look for, the tour button is just a push away. The tour button will bring you to 1 of 12 tours of the best objects visible during any given month. You can also identify celestial objects unknown to you by pressing the ID button. The COL will provide detailed information about what you see, including object type, common name, Magnitude, Constellation and a brief visual description.

Equipped with lots of premium accessories, the Orion StarBlast 6i IntelliScope Reflector Telescope will save you money and provide hours of fun for you and your family. The included EZ Finder II Reflex Sight provides a simple way to line up objects in your telescope's field of view. Also included are a 25mm and 10mm Orion Sirius Plossl Eyepiece, which yields 30x and 75x power to give you amazing views. Need a place to hold your oculars within reach for easy switching? Included is an eyepiece rack on the base as well as carry handles allowing easy lifting and transport of your StarBlast 6i.

High-Tech performance with an easy to use, non-intimidating feel, the Orion StarBlast 6i IntelliScope Reflector Telescope will provide you and your family with hours of fun and learning.

Note: The StarBlast 6i IntelliScope Reflector base arrives pre-assembled in its shipping box. Partial disassembly and reassembly of the base is required for installation of the IntelliScope Encoders and components. Complete instructions are included.
